Interesting. So what's the Luger/Ruger angle of dangle? And does anybody (c3) know how/why the Germans went with the higher grip angle?

The luger angle is more swept than a 1911, as are most foreign handguns in my experience, Americans tend to like things a different way than other countries, i.e. shorter stocks, goofy grip angles, the metric system, socialism and other things I have no use for...

Oops. I went back and fixed my post.

But the question remains; Why the drastic difference in grip angles? Last I checked, both American and Europian hands were more alike than different.

Not really sure, many euro guns have different magazine releases in different places as well, maybe they just like being different?

Shot in the dark here, maybe for patent infringement reasons?

Anyone want to comment on the trigger safety? I think it feels funny and distracts some when burning through ammo. Maybe I just need to grow my glock callases.

I don't even feel the trigger safety, I guess I have enough calluses from working with my hands my whole life .

I notice it on my Glock...mostly because of the heavier trigger pull probably. Don't notice it a bit on my XDms. Obviously they have the lighter trigger I prefer, but that's only practical with a secondary (grip) safety system.

Guns don't aim. The shooter does.
